Coupled ZnO/TiO2 Nanorods Deposited in the Pores of Expanded Graphite Prepared by Microwave Irradiation

Abstract:

Article Preview

Expanded graphite (EG) was prepared by microwave irradiation at 1000W for 60s. The growth of coupled ZnO/TiO2 nanonods in the pores of EG by using hydrolysis method without harsh conditions was investigated and their microstructure was studied by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Results show that pores of EG, which can load catalytic nanoparticles, is the physical base for growth of catalytic nanorods. The active edges of graphene of freshly EG is a key factor for the growth of coupled ZnO/TiO2 nanorods under non-catalytic and normal temperature and pressure conditions.
